Adult Coloring Book Giveaway!

Hi friends! Today I am giving away the new Make Your Own Mural coloring book from the Witty Gritty Paper Company! Click the link to see all of the lovely designs in this high quality coloring book and read on to see how you can win one!

table4

My kids and I love this coloring book and the paper in this book is really lovely I tried it with several mediums to see what worked best:

table5

The first panel was done in watercolor and watercolor marker but the water based media warped the paper. The second panel was done with alcohol markers which blended beautifully and looks super vibrant! The next panel was done with wax based colored pencils which also worked well, I tried blending them with solvent but it did not work as well due to the smoothness of the paper I think. The last panel was done with watercolor pencils and a waterbased blender pen which I probably liked the best. Since I did not want to waste my coloring test sheet I cut up the panels and made bookmarks because with 5 avid readers in the house they are always in demand!

table6

After trimming the panels I adhered them to black cardstock, punched a hole and added a tassel for a fun and durable bookmark! It is a great way to use all of the beautiful pages you have colored! You can also hang them on the wall and create a mural for your friends and family to enjoy!

table2

I love finding practical uses for my craft supplies and what better time to encourage others to be creative than with this beautiful coloring book and an inspiring assortment of coloring media. Here I placed a sheet of brown kraft paper on my coffee table and put crayons and colored pencils in glass flower “frogs” (you can find these at antique markets and they are wonderful for displaying pretty pens and things in but they are made to put at the bottom of a vase to keep flowers upright.) The kraft paper protects your table and gives people a place to test a color before using it in their book. You could also use white butcher paper. I love to put on a movie and sit around the coffee table and color!

table1

This is a great activity for kids on thanksgiving. they can color and watch the parade While parents are busy getting dinner ready. The finished coloring sheets could be used as place mats too, if you laminate them with clear contact paper you could use them year after year! I think I would rather sit at the kids table this year LOL!

Giveaway!

Also I have a free shipping coupon code that you can use on anything at The Witty Gritty Paper Companycolormefrugal good through December 6th, 2016.
